The Fast (and Potentially Inexpensive) Path to Freedom from Bruxism

If you really want to interrupt a pattern you don’t like, the more ways you interrupt it at once, the better, but remember, a change (such as a mouth guard) that acts as a pattern interrupt for one person may actually reinforce the undesired pattern for someone else. If you want to know what will work for you, try different things, and see what helps. If you want to objectively measure what helps and what doesn’t, you can inexpensively rent a biofeedback headband and monitor your progress (if the website doesn’t mention the possibility of renting, call on the phone – they can be rented).

If you don’t want to spend a lot of money, start by experimenting with products that are inexpensive to try or have money-back guarantees. Make sure you are getting enough sleep.
